I was going by the price of the Triton you were willing to pay for until a couple of posts ago. The H80i is only 10 pounds more. If you really can't afford that then the Seidon will do.

If it's only a few weeks why don't you just use the stock cooler until then? No need to OC the CPU so it'll be fine for typical loads.

It'll do the job, until you inevitably decide you want to try overclocking. You'll get a minor overclock out of it. If you indeed do plan to upgrade rather soon then it just makes more sense to use the stock cooler for a couple of weeks and order something better.

Yeah, i probably won't OC yet, but i do want to in the future, i just hate stock coolers, lol they're so ugly etc. but i know they do the job. I'd still rather go for a £40 water cooler, more nicer. lol. But thanks for the help! i can hopfully order all the parts at the end of this week. and i shall post pictures of it all

Hey PP Mguire, I just had a look on scan, and found the 750W psu for just a little more?

EVGA SuperNOVA 750W Modular Power Supply - 120-G1-0750-XR - Scan.co.uk

Would it be better to go for this PSU? I can order most parts tomorrow, would just need GPU and CPU.

*couldnt edit my last post *

That's a G1 variant which is OEM'd by a different company than the G2 which got good scores. I can't really recommend it, although likely it's fine.

So, stick with the 650w one? Or go for the 750w, for future upgrades
